22 oz. bottle, $7 at Binny’s. Got this in October, and it got stacked up while re-painting the beer cellar. Pours a big black body under a light brown head, just a tad lighter than a stout. Has a more stouty smell than the few other black lagers I’ve had. Much more roasty malt. Has some alcohol in the nose, too. Taste has the roasty roughness of a stout at first, but settles down to let some dry lager character in. Once you get used to the dark roast, it does suggest a heartier Dortmunder or altbier. Definite German noble hops making a bit of peppery spice. Light texture on the tongue, yet a bit heavy in the nose. An interesting combination.
I believe Pawola22 sent me this bottle. Dark brown with an off-white head. The aroma is full of roasted malt, chocolate, milk and cocoa. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of chocolate and powdered cocoa character as well as some roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2012

My first ever Schwarzbier. Poured from bomber into Founders snifter.
A: Pours very dark, almost like stout. 1.5 finger dirty pearl head leaving a nice lace as it dissipates.
S: Big barley and malts. Smells like a traditional pilsner. So interesting.
T: Traditional barley with a nice malt backbone. Some hops on the backend as well.
M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Filmy mouth feel with a great hop lingering taste.
O: This was a very strange beer. I feel like it showed several qualities of a few beers, but in the end it was its own. I enjoyed the taste, but I don’t have anything to compare it to.
